Arby’s Reuben Sandwich
- Corned Beef and Swiss topped with Sauerkraut topped with rye bread with Thousand Island dressing then toasted on both sides.
It wasn’t until years later that I actually tried one and really liked it and was glad to see a version was offered on Arby’s menu beginning a few years back.
It has the above requisite items and you have the salty meat offset with the crunch of the sauerkraut and the smoothness of the melted Swiss Cheese then he tang of the dressing between the two pieces of toasted bread. The only thing lacking is the bread is more more like a cross between white and rye bread as it lacks Caraway seeds and the slighly sour taste rye bread normally has which adds to the complexity of textures and tastes.
It won’t be the best Reuben sandwich you can get, but it has a decent taste and Arby’s is the only fast food place that I know of that currently offers this deli type of sandwich. My family goes “ewh” and “yuck” to sauerkraut, which I love, but if they could get past the idea of it and actually taste it, I think they would like it as it blends in and complements the other flavors in the sandwich.
It runs around $4.99 for one sandwich plus tax, but sometimes Arby will have coupons on the mail for buy one-get one free and it is a sandwich that re-heats well.
